KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- The newly arrived S5 truss segment for the International Space Station passes near the Vehicle Assembly Building on its trek to the Space Station Processing Facility. There it will be fit checked for a Photo-Voltaic Radiator Grapple Fixture. It will also undergo a fit check to a truss simulator to ensure that it will fit properly with the S4 and S6 truss segments. S5 is scheduled for launch in October 2003 on mission STS-118. It will be the tenth truss assembled in...

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- In the Space Station Processing Facility, overhead cranes lower the Mobile Base System onto the weight and center of gravity stand. Part of the payload on mission STS-111 to the International Space Station, the MBS will be installed on the Mobile Transporter to complete the Canadian Mobile Servicing System, or MSS. The mechanical arm will then have the capability to "inchworm" from the U.S. Lab Destiny to the MSS and travel along the truss to work sites....

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- STS-112 Mission Specialist David Wolf discusses flight equipment with two technicians during a Crew Equipment Interface Test at KSC. STS-112 is the 15th assembly flight to the International Space Station and will be ferrying the S1 Integrated Truss Structure. The S1 truss is the first starboard (right-side) truss segment, whose main job is providing structural support for the radiator panels that cool the Space Station's complex power system. The S1 truss segment...

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- STS-113 Mission Specialist John Herrington looks over part of the payload for the mission during Crew Equipment Interface Test activities in the Space Station Processing Facility. The mission will be carrying the first port truss segment, P1 Truss, to be attached to the central truss segment, S0, on the International Space Station. Once delivered, the P1 truss will remain stowed until flight 12A.1. Launch date for STS-113 is under review.
